Jennifer Kozek is a therapist who practices in Connecticut, and is also the mother of a son with Autism Spectrum disorders. After treating Evan bio-medically, along with other healing practices, Jennifer witnessed the kind of improvements that every parent of a similarly diagnosed child dreams of: Evan no longer grunts and screams, throws toys, hits others, or has mood swings. He no longer throws himself into fits of uncontrollable rage, listens to his teachers & responds appropriately. He copes better with changes in routine & makes eye contact more often. He no longer enters into a trance-like state and the list goes on. Evan is now a happy, well-adjusted, 7 year-old.

Healing Without Hurting: Treating ADHD, Apraxia, and Autism Spectrum Disorders Naturally & Effectively Without Harmful Medication by LPC Kozek is a non-fiction work about healing children without them feeling like a number on a sheet of paper that a doctor references, and treating them like they are real people. It discusses the process of determining that Evan was on the autism spectrum, and then the journey that the family went through in trying to help him overcome and live a full life without getting lost in the system or overloaded with medications. It is written as a story, covering landmarks in Evan's life and the decisions that were made, as well as the treatments.
The story is truly touching, and the author does an amazing job of explaining all of the presented treatment methods in a clear and concise fashion, and all within the context of this one young boy and the journey he and his family went through. This makes it personal and adds extra depth and humanity that really brings everything to life. Parents of children with similar conditions could easily find this work to be a life saver, making their own journey through this healthcare system with its nightmarish pitfalls and traps considerably easier and more rewarding.
Healing without Hurting by LPC Kozek is a real winner, one of the best books I've ever read of its kind, and is sure to offer aid and succor for those struggling with the exact situation that this book addresses. A fantastic and moving read.
